Come hear an inspiring panel of visionaries who are using digital devices and media to inspire social change – both on a local and global level.

Moderated by Mark Randall, Program Chair for the School of Visual Art’s (SVA) program Impact! Design for Social Change and Principal of Worldstudio, our panelists will share their work in both the for-profit and non-profit worlds and their ideas on how you can put great design and technology to good use.
